handpicked - cannelle et vanille

...when a little escapism is required as the perfect tonic to a quick paced day - I take a little path to a wonderful blog called Cannelle et Vanille. This is my idea of perfection. Beautiful food. Gorgeous styling. Addictive colour. For every visit I take I seem to experience a totally different journey and come away breathlessly inspired by the simple things in life.

...a little splash of colour inspiration to ignite ideas and to explore mixing tones and hues that you may not have considered.....warm neutral tones, corals and teals, inky and glass blues and reds with milk and buttercream, sage greens and custard yellows with french blues, meringue white and apricot with dark lamp greys....

...we love this image above, the bride asked her bridesmaids to choose there own dresses so each style was a reflection of themselves...

made with love you may know we are busy working
on next years new 'Label' - THE VINTAGE DRAWER.
The first collection to be introduced is 'made with love'.
When we started researching new directions and ideas for next year I found my old sewing case that I made when I was seven years old. So one afternoon I sat amongst my collection of vintage linens and haberdashery and I pottered 'til midnight. I used to spend hours when I was a younger making things, sorting things, sewing things together. Button boxes, old tins full of old lace and ribbon, going to the market with my Nan to buy scrap bags of fabric and felt and then a creative explosion would begin when I got home - some of my creations were useful (my dolls were very well dressed) and some not so useful (a quilted vase cover to keep flowers warm??????what's that all about??!!)...
But that little nostalgic day with all of my treasured hoardings was the day that 'the vintage drawer' was born and the 'made with love' first sample created...

We wanted to run, alongside our printed range, a new 'label' that was vintage through and through, to look and feel as if it had been hand made and re-discovered from the 1940's and early 50's. A time when making something for someone was 'made with love'.

Each product is a bespoke piece, all delicately made with vintage and retro linens and haberdashery, hand sewn and machine stitched together. The invitations are little booklets and come in their own little decorated box. They are approx 9cm x 9cm in size.
We are currently working on our reception stationery for this collection and you can see its creation being documented here and over at studio snippets.
This month we will be working on favour ideas such as lavender bags (see our pretty favour sewing cases above), place names, table numbers, menus, thank you booklets, lovely embroidery signs such as 'welcome', 'naughty but nice', just married'...........and anything else that takes our fancy!!!

You can order an invitation sample, the charge for this is £12.00 (inc P&P), and it will be sent to you via recorded delivery. This is then redeemable against an order of £300 or more. All you have to do is email to request a 'made with love' invitation sample, payment details are given on request.

(the photo's of the invitations above
and below all have decorated pages)
Boxed Save the Date booklets undecorated £6.50
Boxed Save the Date booklets with decorated pages £9.00
Boxed Invitation booklets undecorated £6.50
Boxed Invitation booklets with decorated pages £9.00
Menus from £9.00-£15.00
Table Numbers from £10.00-£15.00
Place Name Ties from £3.50
Named Chair Back Ties from£15.00
Thank You Booklets from £6.50
Favour lavender bags from £7.00
Boxed favour lavender bags from £9.00
Sewing Cases - £25.00

We will have a very simple system in place. As each booklet and product is individually made and a 'one-off' item - we will have a catalogue of images that will be emailed across to you of each of the booklets/products already made and ready to be personalised.
All you have to do is select from the catalogue the booklets you would like for your stationery and then leave the rest to us. So samples are available from today and orders can be made from January 1st 2011. Minimum order of 10 for most products (excludes table numbers and menus). Please email us here in the studio if you have any questions.

We would love to hear what you think of the new collection - please leave a comment below, and be sure to keep stopping by to see the new products as they are 'freshly baked'...
Why not follow us and be sure to always be the first to hear any news.....
We will also be introducing collections of vintage linens over at 'The Paper Store' this month for you to buy. Perfect for decorating your reception tables. We will feature them here as they are stocked on the shelves in the shop. Just go to 'The Vintage Drawer' aisle.
